kids help you grow and develop as an individual.  so it's one of the few moral responsibilities one makes in life.  if it weren't for my kid, id be breaking into the neighbors house, stealing their tv and eating their food.



Some people grow and develop as an individual in other ways. I think I'm plenty mature enough to have kids; I just don't want any.

that will teach those kids!

That was great! I'll have to remember that for when my kids are teenagers! Of course, I also have all the pictures of them sitting naked on the training potty that I can pull out to show their friends if necessary!

The Pew Research Center survey on marriage and parenting found that children had fallen to eighth out of nine on a list of factors that people associate with successful marriages well behind "women doing household chores," "good housing," "adequate income," a "happy sexual relationship" and " a wifes faithfulness."

The survey also found that, by a margin of nearly 3-to-1, Americans say the main purpose of marriage is the "mutual happiness and fulfillment" of adults rather than the "bearing and raising of children."

If you're surprised by this, it's probably because you don't know enough people with children.
